What are your treatment options for hammertoe?
Our experienced podiatrists will help form a treatment plan that suits your needs. Nonsurgical treatments may include:
- Trimming corns and calluses
- Padding corns and calluses
- Changes in shoe wear
- Orthopedic devices
- Injection therapy
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Splinting or strapping
Surgery may be needed if your hammertoe becomes more rigid. The most common surgical procedure is called arthroplasty, which removes a small section of bone from the affected joint.
For more severe cases, arthrodesis is an option. It involves fusing a small joint in the toe to straighten it.
